Crafting an outcome with technology. Planning, design is great but actually seeing things 'come to life'... I never tire of that.

From around 2001 I have implemented most of the design work that I have created. My development experience originated in the front-end, HTML, CSS, JavaScript (including ExtJS and MxGraph frameworks) and prior to its demise I created a lot of ActionScript. I'm also a bit familiar with PHP and know my way around WordPress, both plugins and themes.

When working on development projects I have traversed the testing pyramid and integrated with continuous integration (but sadly Continuous Deployment has been lacking in most workplaces). I've used Git and SVN and other project tools like BaseCamp, Trello, JIRA and Confluence.

More recently I've become more full stack as I have gotten familar with microservices, databases and using cloud providers like AWS. I have a particular interest in serverless architecture.
